Any VCs out there have advice on how to build up deal flow? Different channels, tips you’ve learned from your own experience, or events I should know about. Firm is younger but the partners have good connections and reputation, just want to find new ways to increase deal flow quality and quantity. Thanks in advance.

I’m working through this same thing at my VC firm. Practitioner-led shop where it seems like the partners already have all the connections. But I’ve done a few specific things that I can share. Happy to hop on a call and compare notes with you.

South Asian ladies - how do you handle the marriage conversations with your parents? Every time I visit my parents, this is all they talk about. It got to a point where I stopped coming home. I know avoiding them isn’t the healthiest way to handle it. For context, I’m 34 and been living on my own since college. I’m born and raised in the US, and don’t find guys in my culture attractive. My parents aren’t being open minded of inter-racial dating / marriage. I’m starting to feel hopeless 😞

I am being head hunted more frequently. I am in the final stages for one position that seems like an amazing opportunity with a company that plans to go public this year and was just approached for another potential opportunity for a big company that went public last year. Ever feel like an opportunity is too good to be true or are these great opportunities really out there? I think I am just scared to take the leap of faith

Suggestions for things to do/eat in San Francisco?

I am fairly new to the US and I noticed that quite a few of my team members justify their actions if I am giving them feedback. To me it sounds like they are not really accepting the feedback. Is this normal behavior or might I be doing something wrong? Never experienced that before. I am probably pretty direct but NYC working culture doesn’t seem to be too far off from what I am used to from my home country and I always stay fact based also explaining this is an opportunity for them to improve.
